Reefer Madness the Musical by Kevin Murphy and Dan Studney

Directed by Garrett Ayers

A musical send-up of the cult favorite 1936 propaganda film (also released as Tell Your Children, Doped Youth, and Love Madness), this over-the-top cautionary tale shows how innocent teenagers will turn from cocoa-sipping sweethearts into demons instantly with one puff of the green stuff, following the devil’s path through robbery, manslaughter, suicide, madness, hallucinations, murder, and (yes) zombies to the electric chair. Not appropriate for uptight squares, pompous narcs, priggish flat-earthers, and your children. Read more about the production.

**May not be appropriate for all ages.**

Please Note: There will be NO late seating during the first half of this event – patrons arriving after curtain will be seated after intermission.

And once the reefer has been destroyed

We’ll start on Darwin and Sigmund Freud

And sex depicted on celluloid

And communists and queens!

When danger’s near

Exploit their fear—

The end will justify the means!
